I’ve posted Entry # 87 to my weekly Valuation-Informed Indexing column at the Value Walk site. It’s called The Fair-Value P/E10 Number Is Somewhere Between 14 and 16.
Juicy Excerpt: Yale Economics Professor Robert Shiller, the grandfather of the Valuation-Informed Indexing model, puts it at 16. There’s a good case that can be made for that number. But “16” is not the only reasonable answer to the question “What is the fair-value P/E10 number?”
John Walter Russell, former owner of the www.Early-Retirement-Planning-Insights.com site, did the statistical work for development of The Stock-Return Predictor and the other calculators available at my web site. John put the fair-value P/E10 number at 14. He explained why in this article: Typical Values of P/E10.
